    This is a great idea! And what great goals you have! I love how do-able they seem. You have a good mix of big ones and smaller ones. I wish you much success with achieving all of them! Happy New Year!

    Wow. This is really inspirational. I am like *this* close to being inspired to make my own list. Except then I would have to *do* them and I’m not sure I’m motivated.

    If you want to meet me sometime, I can give you my houseplants (the previous owners left them and I have a black thumb and am guaranteed to kill them). OH! And you could come HERE and stay in a hotel (alone) and go skiing that same weekend. 4 things! check, check, check, check! 😉

      okay…maybe just 30 things to do before I turn 30…I think 101 scares me! LOL

      The 101 things don’t have to be huge! One can be to buy yourself flowers. Another could be to try new perfume. Go for 101!!!
